Back in the ’80s, bird stores were common in the New York City metropolitan area. Now — along with the local pet shop and aquarium store — nearly all are gone. Owned and operated by Peter Dimidis since 1980, Pete’s Bird Garden at 6727 Kennedy Blvd, 07047, is one of the happy exceptional few bird stores still in business.
At Pete’s Bird Garden, you’ll find a wide range of finches, canaries, small hookbills and parrots, too. European Goldfinches are available. Peter Dimidis is knowledgeable about many kinds of birds, including European Finches.
